For the last few weeks I’ve been studying Hebrews. I’ve been amazed to see how many areas Hebrews dives into. It starts out by telling us who Jesus was; not merely a man as some would like to believe, and not lower than angels as others would think, but higher and even separate from angels. Jesus is the very Son of God!

I was looking though tickets for my trip home for the summer when I realized I no longer needed to click on “round trip tickets”. I’ve been praying about whether to go home next year for a while, but the realization of what the decision meant didn’t sink in till I was looking for tickets.
Romans 8:38,39 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
When I was a little girl growing up, whenever anyone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I lit up because I knew the answer, “I want to be a missionary.” My whole life has been influenced by this desire because I knew the need, I knew God’s heart for people and I wanted to be the one who went.

Three years ago we had our hearts challenged with the possibility of going overseas to do some hands on tribal church planting. It was welcomed with great fear, lots of what ifs, and a few…really, God…now? moments. Actually lots of those moments! But along with it also came thoughts of amazement and wonder that God might actually want to use us to go do this thing! I felt completely like an Abraham & Sarah case. Minus the baby part of course but still…really God? We definitely wanted to walk with that type of faith! What would that look like? For us, for our kids, for our families back home, our friends, our students? It was a lot to consider and pray about!
Well as we continued to move forward truly believing God for this direction we felt He was leading in, all sorts of good things came to us! Learning to trust God more. Seeing Him become even more real to us. Especially myself! I was learning submission and trust towards Thomas. Not an easy task on my part folks! We were purposefully looking more intently at what we felt each kid needed for us to do this new life change. We did change some things. And it’s been good.

It all started Sunday night. I hadn’t eaten very much because from the time I got up till the time I went to church I was working in the office. After I finished in the office I went straight to church and then straight to work. As I was vacuuming at work all I could think about was food.
Christmas shopping this year wasn’t easy like it’s been in years past. I’ve always enjoyed going down rows of festive candy and glittering lights. I have always loved Christmas because I enjoy getting people presents to show them that I care about them.
I just got back from a wonderful week at home with my family. As I was saying my goodbyes and getting in line for the security I realized something. I wasn’t drained or worried at the thought of heading back to New Tribes Bible Institute!
